The latest European construction market forecasts – presented at the 89th Euroconstruct conference, hosted by Prognoscentret
AB, Stockholm and held on 12 June 2020 as a webinar – show that the European construction industry is being hit hard by the
COVID-19 crisis. Total construction output will fall to a value of 1,500 billion € in 2020, which is the same level as in
2015. With a few exceptions, all EC-19 countries are experiencing a decline in 2020, with the UK and Ireland predicting the
largest downturn. Against the background of the improving health situation, there will be a recovery as early as next year.
– The Euroconstruct Country Report provides detailed information on the construction market trends and its fundamentals in
each of the 19 Euroconstruct member countries until 2022. The forecasts and analyses are presented on the country level and
are based on a harmonised dataset for the major construction sectors and indicators. The macroeconomic framework conditions
are included additionally. With contributions by Anne-Sophie Alsif, Anders Bjerre, Christian Brander, Paul Donadieu de Lavit,
